Jefferson-documented

French Tarragon was Thomas Jefferson’s favorite herb. He made several inquiries to locate it in 1806, and was sent a shipment of roots by Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon on April 30th of that year. The species Artemisia dracunculus was in American gardens before the Revolution. While this may have been the inferior Russian Tarragon, which has no culinary use, the type sodl her is the selected, sterile clone so essential in French cuisine. It is used in Bearnaise sauce, vinegars, and in fish and chicken dishes. Like other wormwoods, French Tarragon has a stimulating effect on the whole digestive system.
